Utah and Another Girly Quilt

Last weekend my wonderful husband let me get away to Utah to see friends and family. It was a short, but sweet trip. Here are some pictures of the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point that Kathleen and I went to. The weather was perfect! The flowers were beautiful! One of the best parts was they had Kettle Korn, mmmmmmm, my favorite.

Kathleen and her family just adopted a sweet Ethiopian baby girl. I went to the baby shower and gave her a quilt I made her using Swanky Layer Cake and a pattern from Moda Bake Shop. I'm still just a beginner quilter, but this pattern was easy to whip up. I attempted to stipple the quilt with my new machine and it did wonderful. I love how it turned out.

I appliqued Sitota's name on the quilt. Sitota is an Ethiopian name meaning Gift of God. She is such a good, sweet, adorable baby.

Like the last quilt I made, I machine stitched on the binding, easy and looks good, I think.

My boys had their pinewood derby race with the Cub Scouts. Tanner's car did quite well, and Spencer...well... he's done better in the past, but they all had fun.


  1. I'm so glad you got to have a little getaway, you deserve it. The quilt is beautiful, you did such a wonderful job.

    The pinewood derby was fun, your boys were so cute and such good sports.

  2. oh dang! We SO should have taken photos while you were here. :( Bad thinking on my part!

  3. I just gave you an award. Go to my blog for instructions.

  4. Wow, that little girl is cute!
